Singapore's Favourite Snapper!
In this post, I'm going to share about another common fish that we encounter on our Singapore shores or even regional waters. This fish is none other than the Golden Snapper (Ang Cho/Kim Cho/Ungah). The snapper family has many species and variants but what I actually want to share are the 3 main "species" or rather "types" that Singaporean fishos encounter locally. The fish is so popular with the local fishing community that many paypond operators bring in this fish locally to release into their fishing ponds! This is because the fish (be it wild or farmed) gives an excellent account of itself during the fight and it is reasonable eating even when from the farm. Here's a breakdown of the three broad types that you will encounter as you fish our Singapore shores. One may ask, is there a difference at all?!?! Farmed Golden Snapper is probably the type that is more encountered by pond fishing kakis and these fish are bred in fishing farm or kelong nets unt
